We Practice What We Teach

As the region’s only academic OB/GYN program, Erlanger physicians are heavily involved in research and clinical trials to improve care and outcomes, including trials of a new treatment for preeclampsia, studies to reduce pain following surgery and new ways to prevent and treat diabetes in pregnancy.

Furthermore, Erlanger partners with the UT College of Medicine to offer Tennessee’s only fellowship program in Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery. It also educates regional doctors and nurses through an annual symposium on women’s health.
